There are already developed models of how we will open schools and universities. "We will present the final program by August 10. Similar programs have been developed for other areas as well". The Deputy Prime Minister, responsible for the state of emergency, commandant Tigran Avinyan said this at today's briefing.
He announced that a decision had been made to extend the state of emergency for another month, but there would be significant changes in regard of certain restrictions. In particular the issue of entry of foreigners will be reviewed, restrictions on the export of certain goods, rallies and public events will be reviewed. This will be announced on August 12.
"The easing of restrictions will depend on our behavior and how we comply with anti-epidemic rules", the commandant said.
Avinyan noted that this will be the last extension of the state of emergency, after which the issue of making changes in the laws conditioned by the state of emergency will be discussed in the National Assembly. "And if the positive trend continues, we will gradually return to our normal lives", said the Deputy Prime Minister.
